out. mitt romney made a series of bargains to become the nominee for the republican party in order to beat rick perry. he moved to the right of carry on immigration. he moved to the right of rick santorum. he took the grover norquist pledge. he did all the things that were required of a potential republican nominee. but in each of those steps, he made it rder for him to win a general election. and he brought to this some strengths. the other thing that will the president four years ago was that romney was the likely nominee because i believe in the theory of opposites. whoever the incumbent is, people are looking for the brevity, not the replica. and romney would represent a stark difference from obama, a businessman, grounded, t a visionary, not an order for. >> so you thought he would be the nominee. you thought that through the whole entire primary process? >> i had a few moments of doubt, as i suspect he may have. but he got to those moments was to do what i said, to move to the right. with each step, i think he made himself more vulnerable. in the abstract, his profile as a bu

we hate it. we hated here too. millionaires and mitt romney get a pass. they only pay social security on a little of their income. the last debt limit cost taxpayers $25 million because we have to pay interest to banks we still give loans to for free. what i would like to see is entitlement reform. if you are retired from congress and you are a millionaire, you do not get a pension. you do not get health care. if you go to work as a lobbyist, you do not get a pension either. that is the entitlement reform i would like to see. >> a little bit more from the article that just came out on line. according to one republican in the conference room, kantor went robe on the messaging and clearly his colleagues and leadership by surprise with his decision to come out against the bill. technically, the agreement was not yet dead, but boehner's control of this congress is practically nonexistent at this point and there is virtually no chance he can marshal the 120 republicans he insists he needs. tweets are fast and furious. host: next call comes from rick in point pleasant, was to virginia. a de

are and have no idea what mitt romney's plan for the country was -- you know, a billion citizens united is a disaster, and i talked to jim messina, who was so instrumental in the obama re-election organization. he feels as though -- i hope i am not speaking out of school to say this -- he feels we need a constitutional amendment to protect voters rights and to also protect our collections from the pollution of this amazing amount of money. i agree with bonnie. i do not know if it is an option, but the money is a distraction. it does not to give us good information about who these people are. now, noam chomsky says that the size of a piece of information is to make it as short as it is today is an effective way of censoring, is a censorship to shorten our pieces of information, because it gives us the opportunity to say something that people already know. but the amount of time that it takes to contradict a sort of known perceived consensus of reality and perceived wisdom to disassembled that in to build into someone's mind in an argument an alternative way of seeing things, it ju

beneficiaries and saw mitt romney and paul ryan bash him. he is in a tough position. in some ways obama and liberals could allow the government to negotiate drug prices under part d. that would be a significant savings. there are ways to do it. host: rick from texas. caller: good morning and happy new year. my wife and i got in severe credit card debt in 2008. i went to my boss and said, "i need a raise to pay off some of my expenses." he said, "you have not been more productive." i went to my father, a successful businessman. i asked him to bail me out. he had a lot of money. he did not earn it. it was the people that purchased the vehicles. he used terms like "personal responsibility" and that i had to pay off my own debt. host: we got your point. guest: the economy is bad. the government has to pay out more in benefits. one way to get the government to spend less is to spend more to stimulate the economy. what obama was trying is serious stimulus to boost the economy. if you think of the federal government that is someone that has to balance its books, that is the obama approac

the rug. neither the president's nor romney talked about climate change suddenly people began to talk about the issue. mayor bloomberg is on climate change. i think the storm that prolongs the rally is affecting our nation's crocked. they do not change everything. they do open up a conversation from which we can begin to make the changes we need to make. >> we will come back to issue around that. the last set of predictions was the head of epa. prior to that the 50th governor of the state of new jersey. this has more powers in the state and id any other governor. it was very important. now she shares the state pension rate coalition. >> thank you very much. making predictions about 2013 is a dicey proposition. the chance of getting anything right are getting more difficult. i will say that you have a department of energy calling for a 22% in trees. that is yesterday. making sure there are decisions. what do i see for the future? we're going to see an increased discussion on climate change. it will be driven by the private sector. the state and local governments have been the labo
